Y4CG has recently completed a Pobble writing task.
The children wrote a story all about time travel and their plot twists included becoming pilots and spies during World War II. I was super proud of all of the children’s efforts!
It was a really hard decision to choose two children to become our class’ first published authors as everyone’s writing was so creative and imaginative. A huge congratulations to Megan and Olivia! Here’s their writing pieces:
All of the children are even more motivated with their writing and love having a real audience to share their work with. It is our class aim to publish everyone’s work for the world to see; we are super ambitious!
Before Christmas, the children are going to be taught how to peer assess and how to use the Pobble website. They will have their own login to explore wonderful writing ideas and celebrate their own and friends’ writing. In the meantime before login details are sent home, the children will be writing some poetry and recounts in class. Let’s hope lots are published on Pobble!
A massive thanks to parents who have created their own personal accounts to support their children and their classmates. I hope you have enjoyed reading their work as much as I have.
Note for children: Please remember to return your Pobble permission slips so that your work can be uploaded throughout the year.
During Evacuee Day this year, Y4CG went back in time to 1941, imagining what life was like during WWII for children. They certainly looked the part in their evacuee outfits and approached the day’s activities with a real sense of enthusiasm. The children explored real life historical accounts during their host family time and took part in a drama based role play activity, learning further about what it was like to be an evacuee. There was a letter writing workshop and the children really tried hard to write a letter expressing their feelings. (We hope our families enjoyed reading them!) In the afternoon the children explored typical music from the war and went on a short walk. The day was finished by creating their very own wartime dishes, which included carrot biscuits.
There was a whole class photo of the children dressed as evacuees in the newsletter. The children look forward to showing their parents and families the work completed all about WWII in their Topic books!
Thank you to all of the children who played such an important role in the Year Four Evacuee Day. Your evacuee outfits were so impressive and your behaviour and enthusiasm for the day’s activities really helped to bring your learning to life!
Please check the class blog soon for photographs of the children completing activities and examples of their writing from today. The children’s return letters are now in the post and the children are very excited for you to receive them.
A sincere thank you to all Year Four parents for your efforts with the letter preparation and outfits. All of the children really looked the part and they loved reading their personalised letters! Your support is greatly appreciated and has added to the children’s engagement with the current topic.
Thank you again for your continued support,
Miss Griffiths and Mrs Hardman
